AEROSPAZIO Tecnologie was founded in 2000 with the aim of providing testing and engineering services in the fields of vacuum technology and Electric Space Propulsion to European industries and R&D organisations. Since its foundation, AEROSPAZIO has been involved in some of the most challenging European Electric Propulsion development programmes. To this aim, an extensive set of test facilities, including Large, Medium size Vacuum Test Facilities and EMI/EMC test room have been developed at Aerospazio and are now available for qualification testing of EP thrusters.


  • Vacuum Test Services / R&D for Electric Propulsion
    The Aerospazio core business is represented by the specialised market of the Electric Propulsion. In this regards Aerospazio acts as an independent test house providing services to the EP primes.

  • The activities are performed in different laboratories hosting several Vacuum Test Facilities of different size, up to 140 cu.m volume.

    The implementation of any new technology in the satellite market requires a careful understanding not only on the performances, but also on the integration issues. For this reason, the research in the aerospace field represents for Aerospazio one of the mandatory missions. The combination of innovative skills with an extensive experience allows to design and develop a large set of systems to satisfy the Aerospace market demand.

    • Plasma & Ion Propulsion
    • Cold Gas Thrusters
    • Laser Fluorescence Spectroscopy
    • Xenon Feeding Systems
    • Vacuum Robotics
    • Power Processing Units
    • EP diagnostic tools

    One of the main emphasis for the acceptance of new EP system on a telecommunications S/C is placed on the Electromagnetic Compatibility between the EP system and S/C equipment. In this regards Aerospazio developed an EMC chamber specially designed for EP thrusters. Since 2015 this facility is operated for EMC characterization tests required by the major EP primes.

    Another important aspect of EP system acceptance is the thermal coupling between the EP system and the S/C. To this aim, a large set of  TVAC specialised facilities are presently available at Aerospazio.
